PGConf.eu 2023 Speaker Dinner

Traditionally, we (the conference organizers) invite the speakers and volunteers to a dinner the evening before the conference. The venue is downstairs, and the seating splits the larger group up into up to 6 people per table. Ideal conditions to walk around, chat with everyone, talk with old friends and meet new peoole.

PostgreSQL Upgrades are hard

Together with Lætitia Avrot and Nikolay Samokhvalov I was invited to participate in a Community Panel about PostgreSQL Upgradability at Postgres Vision 2022. During this panel each of us provided examples for how easy or complicated *PostgreSQL* upgrades still are.

PgConf.Russia 2016

I had the honor to present at PgConf.Russia 2016. It’s probably the biggest PostgreSQL conference in Europe (News report), even bigger than pgconf.eu. It shows that PostgreSQL, and Open Source in general, has a big and growing market share. Was the first time that I travelled to Russia, and as with almost every new country, it is incredible. Also it is nice to be not in charge for a conference, and to enjoy the time attending talks, discuss with others or get stuff done.

PGDay Caribbean 2014 - April 1st joke

You might have guessed it, yesterday’s announcement about the PGDay Caribbean 2014 was an April joke.

I’ve got this idea back at FOSDEM 2014 when we discussed possible options for our European PostgreSQL Conference this year (and no, this conference will certainly not take place in the Caribbean).
